Haven House has been selected as the beneficiary charity for the London Market Forums following its first fashion gala.

The event took place at the prestigious city venue, Banking Hall on Tuesday 20 June. Guests enjoyed a glamorous night of entertainment starting with a fashion show made up of top executives wearing leading designer brands Paule Ka and SuitSupply.

Roger Oldham, Founder of London Market Forums, said: "We are honoured that our chosen charity is Haven House Children's Hospice, who provide a truly outstanding facility for children with life-limiting illnesses and their families."

"We have seen their work first-hand and it is both humbling and awe inspiring."

Rachel Flower, New Business Executive at Haven House, said: "This fabulous fashion gala really kicked off the summer season and raised over £8,000 for the hospice."

"We are very grateful to London Market Forums for hosting this event. The funds raised will help us support local life-limited children and their families."

Since the fashion gala, LMForums has selected Haven House as their charity of the year and are already planning another beneficiary event for the Christmas season.
